Consider the prophetic quality of this bit from Fawlty Towers, filmed back around 1970.
Basil Fawlty (John Cleese), having abused, neglected, and insulted his hotel guests past the point of no return, spins around and blames them for everything. He is especially angry with the American guest who called him out for his incredibly shoddy and incompetent service.
Kind of like Donald Trump has called out the Republican establishment. If they had a hotel, it would be Fawlty Towers.
And wouldn’t you know it? Basil, berating his guests, goes on to say, “This is exactly how Nazi Germany got started!”
Ooh! Decades later, Trump and angry voters are blamed for the prat falls of the GOP–and they’re calling his supporters “Nazis” because they raised their hands, and Trump is “Hitler” and “Mussolini,” and so on.
I haven’t seen such irrational hatred of a candidate, and heard such pure venomous twaddle spouted about him, since poor Barry Goldwater in 1964 was accused to wanting to blow up the world. The Democrats actually ran a TV ad claiming that mushroom clouds would spring up all over the world if Goldwater were elected.
If these bums are so afraid of Trump, there must be something good about him.
